Winter is Upon Us


I have not written since October.  Winter hit us early and hard.  I have, though, been able to do some interesting new research regarding my Flueckiger ancestors who worked for Old Economy Village.  I was also looking into my Dunn family, who moved to Ambridge when US Steel bought the former communal society, to build American Bridge Company, and the town for its workers to live.

So, I’ll be presenting some of the linkages between my family, and some of the other OEV’s worker families which continued for many years, in Ambridge, in the Sewickley Valley, and in Hopewell Township, Pa.; and also links that followed them when several of the families moved to DeLand,  Florida.  I hope these essays reach some other descendants of OEV’s workers, who kept the Harmony Society going after their membership waned.                        Thom Dunn Marti
